IT'S REVEALING...:

Threat from mounting public job losses tested Obama's economic strategy (Zachary A. Goldfarb, 4/29/12, Washington Post)

Since the beginning of his term, state and local governments have shed 611,000 employees -- including 196,000 educators -- according to government statistics. Unlike the recovery in private-sector employment that Obama and his reelection campaign often cite -- with businesses adding 4 million jobs since hiring hit its low point in 2010 -- the jobs crisis at the state and local level has continued throughout his term.

...when folks are happy to be rid of these boondoggles but think it vital that we add make-work positions in the private sector. The reality is that corporate and public bureaucracies are still far too massive.
